Learn the steps required to make a pair of spectacles by hand, using the traditional techniques once commonplace in Clerkenwell. Choose from a selection of materials and colours, and learn how to cut a front, file, polish and finish your frame material.

Discover London's remarkable optical heritage, before trying your hand at traditional spectacle-making processes including milling recesses, adding lens grooves and pinning hinges.

Based in Cubitts' subterranean workshop in King's Cross, the sessions will be led by the experienced workshop team.
